Why book PrimeVR for educational workshops into your school?
Our workshops are a great way of bringing the curriculum to life without the hassle of organising a school trip!
During the Discover Africa workshop, your children will visit the following places across Africa:
- Pyramids of Giza in Egypt
- Turmi market in Ethiopia
- Giraffes in the Serengeti
- Gorillas in the Congo
- Namib Desert in Namibia
- Victoria Falls in Tanzania
- Kruger National Park in South Africa
Following on from this workshop, your pupils can write a travel blog about everything they have learnt and experienced. Our literacy bundles include lesson plans, example texts and LKS2 and UKS2 writing checklists.
Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?
Following on from our workshops, teachers can use our follow up literacy based lesson plans to encourage creative writing. Our lesson plans use a variety of different texts including information, diary and persuasive.
What activities are available during group visits?
We cover the following topics using VR:
Rainforests, Space, Egyptians, Mayans, Volcanoes, Wonders of the World, Under the Sea, WW1, Polar Regions, Digestive System, Romans, Stone Age, Mountains, Americas, The Tudors, Vikings, Circulatory System, Africa, Animals, India & Beyond, Journey Across China, The Respiratory System and Around the World.
What size groups do you cater for?
Over a full day, we can deliver a maximum of 8 workshops with up to 32 children in each (maximum of 256 children in a day). We bring in 16 VR headsets and we usually run our workshops with children sharing one headset between two. However, if you would prefer, we can split classes into two groups to allow children to have one headset each.
Do you offer on-site classroom facilities?
We deliver our workshops on the school-site. We require one classroom or hall for the day.
Do you cater for visitors with Special Educational Needs (SEN)?
Yes. We've worked with a number of SEN schools and the response/feedback to VR has been fantastic.
"We have had Prime VR in twice and each time it has been excellent. Matt was extremely helpful in setting up the day, communicated wonderfully and adapted to last minute changes. The children were enthralled and really helped to set up our topics. We look forward to having him back in the spring."
